      Got the brisket in the smoker for around 4 hours now. Will toss it in the oven around 1:00.  Brother and SIL are up and we had our grandson overnight as well. Today we will celebrate his 1st birthday with a little party. Very gloomy out but looks like no rain for a while.

      No, she had her second knee last September.  It went great. 
    • New "Good Morning" thread
      Your wife is getting a TKA? Never heard a complaint about one of those. Lots and lots of those done and everyone that has one seems happy. At least from MAYO, anyway. They DO have great Ortho docs.
    • New "Good Morning" thread
      Rooney, I hope it goes as well for her as for my wife.  It is amazing how many of those they do. The rehab process is important.    Best wishes to her.
    • Sweet Tea Chicken
      Put my chicky in when I got up, with the tea and scallions. left the lime juice out....first time I want to see how much tea flavor remains after cooking. Instead of the garlic, I added some crushed Rosemary.  I'll jazz it up a bit next time if needed. 
    • New "Good Morning" thread
      Good soggy morning all. Still, drippy, and ultra-hume. Just like a rainforest. All we need is a howler monkey or a macaque going at it. Supposed to clear up a bit for tomorrow and Memorial day. Hope so. Sunday I'll be doing my thing at the cemetery scrubbing, shining, polishing, placing flowers and the flag and star. For the past 25 years, I've always planted a wooden planter I made with flowers. It finally fell apart a couple years ago, and it's way too hard anyway for me to kneel down to water, pick the dead flowers out, etc. I go up there 2-3 times every week all Summer to take care of the stuff. Bought one of those stands couple years ago ya put a big ceramic pot in, but I just bought a big hanging basket and popped that in it. Finally bought one of the ceramic ones last week. Cripes, $39 for an empty pot? Then the flowers for it....sheesh. Oh well, the pot will be used every year. Hope it is nice tomorrow.  I'm soaking some chicky thighs in sweet tea, per the new posted recipe on the food thread. I'll do them up tomorrow on the charcoal grill. Can't beat chicky off a charcoal grill. Have to come up with a side to go with them; and I'm out of radishes and green tops too. Dang! Trip to the store coming. Roony, ya coulda swung down and picked up this old fart, I sit still and don't make much noise.  Hope all goes well with your MIL. Constant pain takes a lot out of ya.  Time for that cup #2. Have a good day, guys.
    • Plans for the Fall
      I don't know if something is wrong or not. I do know that getting trekking poles has helped my knees a ton. Definitely worth the money for saving your knees.

    • New "Good Morning" thread
      Good Morning! Yesterday about mid afternoon a good friend and neighbor stopped by and he MADE me go fishing with him on a local lake. We picked up another old timer and off we went. He had purchased a new fangled trolling motor the likes of which I haven't before seen. No anchor needed, just push the anchor button on the remote control and the darn thing kept you in the spot. The fish cooperated, we caught a nice bunch of crappies and bluegills of respectable dimensions. I should have stayed home and worked but this was a very welcome diversion.  Have a good day all and Good Luck with your appointments Reb. My 88 year old mother in law is going to Cawchester on Tuesday for knee replacement. Chronic pain is no fun.
